The National Railway Museum has unveiled five shortlisted design concepts for the museum’s new Central Hall building – part of its £55 million Vision 2025 development.
Now the public is being asked which they like and why.
You can look at the five in our gallery below and vote for your favourite. We’ll pass on the results of our reader poll to the NRM.
Also the design concepts are available to view in an online gallery and at a free public exhibition in the National Railway Museum’s Great Hall from 13 February to 29 March 2020.
Members of the public can share their views on the proposals until Sunday 23 February – by filling out a comment slip at the exhibition or by emailing the competition organisers.
With a construction budget of £16.5 million, the new Central Hall will create an appealing and compelling entrance space. During museum opening hours, it will also provide a pedestrian route between Leeman Road and the Marble Arch pedestrian tunnel.
This 4,500 sqm centrepiece building will include a spectacular 1,000 sqm gallery to showcase innovative rail technology and the museum’s world-class railway collection.
Here are the shortlisted designs listed by the architects.
